Emma McVey reveals ‘depression’ over baby Primrose’s health: ‘all I’ve done is watch my babies suffer in pain’

Gaz Beadle’s fiancee Emma McVey has opened up on her baby daughter Primrose’s illness after she was rushed to hospital earlier this month, saying she has felt “depressed” in recent weeks.

Taking to Instagram to answer questions from fans who have been left concerned about five-week-old Primrose, Emma, 27, said she wanted to be “totally honest and open” when discussing what has happened with her daughter.

The mother-of-two, who also has son Chester with former Geordie Shore star Gaz, shared a snap of Primrose laying on her chest in hospital.

Alongside the image she wrote: “This was one night in hospital thinking will this ever end, and to be honest I still can’t answer that. I’ve had so many of you asking if Primrose is better, honestly I can’t answer that.”

She continued: “The botox has helped drastically there is no denying that, but she is still on laxatives, still suffering with acid reflux and medication morning and night. We haven’t had a settled 24 hours yet so I don’t want to say yes or no but she is doing a lot better than the day this photo was taken.

“Instagram doesn’t show you many lows especially with babies, everyone shows the perfect baby photos, and I can’t be the only mum thinking ‘I wish my baby was that settled chilling in a rocker or on their side by me’.”



Emma added that her first-born Chester was “absolutely horrendous” when he was born, after suffering with CMPA (Cow’s Milk Allergy) and acid reflux.

She explained: “We could never put him down and he had to sleep on us. Primrose is even worse and I know I’ll barely be able to put her down for longer than 5 minutes for the next months, but looking at Chester I see why 6 months of hell was so worth it.

“I’ll be brutally honest, I can say I HATE the newborn stage. All I’ve done is watch my babies suffer in pain and scream a good 10/24 hours. Acid reflux, allergies, gagging, choking, suppositories up their bum, cramping, laxatives, the list goes on…when they should realistically be peacefully sleeping most of the time.”

She also appealed to fans for help with Primrose’s medical problems, asking: “Has anyone else’s child had Botox in their sphincter muscle to help them go to the toilet? Please can you get in touch if so!”

Emma continued in a second upload: “To help the sphincter muscle relax not make it tighter… Primrose is not constipated the stool is runny and liquid. She just cannot pass it herself, or wind.”

She heartbreakingly added: “This is not a way of life for a baby at all.”
